The K-12 Chinese Conference is the first of its kind in Florida. Hosted by the University of South Florida, the conference aims to assist school administrators in developing and sustaining Chinese language and cultural programs, as well as providing professional development to current and future Chinese language teachers. The program includes General Sessions in the morning (with nationally known speakers), and two breakout sessions in the afternoon.
There is no registration fee to eligible participants in Florida: public and private school administrators (superintendents, principals, curriculum and/or foreign language coordinators) and Chinese language teachers. Thanks to funding from Hanban through the Confucius Institute, free lunch and soft drinks will be provided, however attendees are responsible for purchasing the appropriate parking permits.
